1. OVERVIEW

1.1 Introduction

Multi-scancapabilities

Power Saving

The MFCD 1218, BARCO’s full color 18” LCD display, guarantees perfect image quality in medical imaging applications.

The display combines a TFT (thin film transistor) liquid crystal display panel structure and a built-inbacklight with inverter for a better picture quality. It is designed to meet users' needs for performance, consistency, and outstanding image quality through a streamlined development process in whichwall-mountfunctionality provides a variety of capability.

The image on the display can be adjusted by means of the extended on-screenmenu system (OSD).

The internal memory can contain settings for 24 different types of video signals (with different timings). 22 are factory-preset,2 are userdefinable.

The display accepts the most common display standards. However, it is limited to the following specifications: The horizontal frequency must be between 31 and 91 kHz, the vertical frequency between 56 and 85 Hz, and the maximum resolution is 1280 x 1024.

The optimum and recommended resolution is

1280 x 1024 / 60 Hz.

The monitor comes with a power saving feature; therefore, you may put the monitor into a power saving state when it is not in use. This feature complies with both EPA‘s Energy Star requirements and European NUTEK/TCO’s power management guidelines. It conforms to Video Electronics Standard Association (VESA) approved DPMS power-downsignaling method. This monitor automatically cuts down power consumption of monitor set when not detecting Hsync or Vsync signals. This feature is compliant with VESA DPMS.

Keep the display away from heat sources and provide enough ventilation in case it is built in a rack or console.

Make sure computer and display are switched off before connecting the signals.

2.2 Wall mounting

You can mount the panel to the wall instead of to the foot, by means of the supplied mounting plate. If you do not need to mount the panel to the wall, please skip this item.

Step 1: Remove the panel from the foot

1Position one hand under the panel at the front side. Position the other hand at the rear, under the push-buttonwith BARCO logo (10).

2Firmly press down the push-button(10) with one hand while carefully lifting the panel up with the other hand.

3Remove the panel from the foot.

Step 2: Fix the mounting plate to the wall

2.3 Connecting the signals

To connect the video & sync signals:

1Connect one end of the appropriate video cable to the corresponding video input of the monitor.

Analog video: Connect to input (2) S-Video:Connect to input (4) DVI: Connect to input (3)

2Connect the other end of the video cable to the video output of your video source. Analog video: Computer graphics board with analog video output

S-Video:E.g.,S-VHSvideo player

DVI: Computer graphics board with digital video output

(4)

To connect the power:

1Connect one end of the proper power cable to the AC input of the 12V DC adapter.

2Connect the 12V supply of the 12V DC adapter to the DC input (1) of the monitor.

3Connect the other end of the power cord to a grounded power outlet.

2.4 Starting up

Proceed as follows:

1Switch on the computer.

2Switch on the display by pushing the Power key (9).

3If necessary, select a suitable resolution in the computer operating system. Please refer to Appendix A, "Possible resolutions" in the back of this manual.

Note: The recommended resolution for best image quality is1280x1024 at 60 Hz.

(9)The microcontroller in the display checks if the connected video signal has been adjusted before, and if these adjustments have been stored in the memory. There are 2 possibilities:

a) The video signal has been adjusted and stored in the memory.

In this case, the display switches to this memory location (the so-calledmode) and the image will need no further adjustments.

b) The video signal has not been adjusted and stored yet.

In this case, the display will auto-sizethe picture and store the settings in one of the user modes.

2.5 Install the DICOM Optimizer software

Proceed as follows:

Install the CD-ROMin theCD-ROMdrive. TheCD-ROMstarts automatically. Please follow the instructions on the screen.

The CD-ROMcontains user instructions about the usage of the DICOM Optimizer.
